Ovine Brucellosis Management

Ovine brucellosis can have a significant effect on your flockā€™s fertility. It can be insidious and go undetected for many years. In flocks with an extended joining period, or those that join at a very high rate, conception rates may not be significantly decreased. However, it is likely to cause a larger spread in lambs, with less lambs born early in the season. Lambs born later in the season are typically less profitable and are more vulnerable at weaning. Stud producers are highly encouraged to participate in the voluntary Western Australian Ovine Brucellosis Accreditation Scheme. Commercial producers are strongly encouraged to screen their flocks annually and test any incoming rams. Whether you are a stud or commercial producer, we can help you manage the brucellosis risk in your flock.
